Fantastic museum. The vast majority of information was also available in English. Unique exhibitions on different parts of Karelian history and culture. Beautiful traditional embroidery. A must-see for anyone visiting Karelia

I must say Karelia has very good, modern and interesting museum of local lore!

Numerous rooms with lots of exponates from different ages of the region's history with informative cards both in Russian and English!

My personal favorite was the one dedicated to the history of the museum's building and the central square the building stands on. It impressed me a lot with old maps, drawings and short video-film!

It was pretty fun to dress-up like the ancient russian warrior and take some pictures! For free!

The stuff is very welcoming and friendly! The museum in general is definitely worth visiting!

Thank VasilyMalygin
